Zero-Max Introduces ServoClass CouplingsApril 1, 2012
Design engineers looking to increase speeds in electronic assembly systems will find ServoClass Couplings from Zero-Max a viable design option, the company said.
ServoClass Couplings provide high torsional stiffness, zero backlash and low hysteresis to ensure repeatable precise positioning at speeds up to 10,000 RPM, the company said. They are designed to ensure precise system operation in automated 24/7 applications. That is especially true where stresses occur at increased speeds in a servo system, the company said.
Designed with 304 stainless steel disc packs and 7075-T6 aluminum hubs, ServoClass Couplings are inherently strong, durable and precisely balanced, the company said. "To ensure precise alignment of the assembled components, ISO 4762 CL12.9 corrosion resistant socket head cap screws are utilized with a carefully controlled assembly process," said a company spokesperson. "Competitor couplings are assembled utilizing brazing, gluing and otherwise less precise methods with more variability."
"ServoClass Couplings are designed to handle the specific sensitivities of servo systems," said Robert Mainz, Zero-Max Sales Manager. "The design of the coupling takes into account the mechanical as well as the electrical attributes of the system with the mechanical components keeping up with the electronic commands of the controller. The design specifications of the ServoClass Coupling aid in making these two entities work far better together than other couplings when used in servo motor applications."
In addition to electronic assembly systems, ServoClass Couplings are suitable for all types of automation, packaging and other types of automated assembly including most systems using ball screws and servo motors, the company said.
ServoClass Couplings are available in single and double flex models in inch and metric bore sizes from 0.157 inch (4 mm) to 1.750 inch (45 mm). All models and sizes feature clamp style hubs and operate in temperatures from -22-degrees to +212-degrees F (-30-degrees to +100-degrees C).
